Listia Loot VI - 1982 Renata Galasso Seattle Pilots Set

This qualifies as my best Listia win. I really didn't know what I was bidding on, but the picture looked like some oddball cards, and since I started blogging I have a new-found appreciation for anything "oddball".

I had no idea I was bidding on the complete forty-three card set, as the picture only showed eight cards.

Needless to say, I was quite pleased with my purchase.

Here's the front of card #1.

The backs offer stats for the 1969 season (the only season in the Pilot's existence...and the basis of Jim Bouton's book "Ball Four".)

Instead of just highlighting the year, it gives a brief synopsis of the players/coaches career.

This was not only my best purchase to date, but at 1,510 credits, the most costly.

Here are all forty-three cards.

Now if every Listia win could be this cool.


  1. This is an awesome pickup. I try to grab as many Pilots cards I can from the two years Topps put them on cards.. 69 and 70

  2. Nice! I found this set for five bucks at my local flea market last year and I've been in love with it ever since. I'm a sucker for anything related to the Pilots.

  3. I got this set when I was a kid in 1983 and had read Ball Four. My mom got it for me for Christmas. The only difference is that my mom added the extra $3 back then and so I have the Jim Bouton card autographed. Awesome pickup!
